DC Universe’s ‘Swamp Thing’ Trailer

A week ahead of its DC Universe debut, a third trailer for Swamp Thing has been released and quite frankly, it’s absolutely terrifying. Though the titular character is hardly in the trailer — much like the rest of the series’ marketing — Dr. Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) is prominently featured throughout as she investigates an epidemic in her hometown. The trailer certainly lives up to the hard R rating those involved with the show previously teased, including Swamp Thing himself, Derek Mears.


The scare-heavy trailer showcases a tonal shift from the clean-cut, technicolor world of comic book television that viewers have become used to over the last few years. Though edgy series inspired by comics like Preacher and DC’s own Doom Patrol have begun to break through, there’s yet to be a straight horror comic series on contemporary TV, a fact that the minds behind Swamp Thing appear to be banking on.
